Attended and taped the April 6th show one short year later in the spring of 1984. The gestalt linkage "high" was over the top as people appeared to be floating on the ceiling like a circus act during the second set.

Choppy performance perhaps, who cares, they could have played a recording that evening and folks still would have had a blast.

The experience of walking out of the Alladin Theatre onto the casino floor was reminiscent of the opening animated sequence of The Grateful Dead Movie. Massive wind storm the next day, the negative ions in the desert air were difficult to handle and leaving the Alladin Hotel two days early for the airport proved to be a wise decision.
